Why is bag of rice going up?

The price of a bag of rice in Nigeria fluctuates due to many reasons.

Economic instability and inflation are causing the value of the naira to drop, making imported goods more expensive.

Additionally, local rice production is often affected by issues like poor infrastructure, inconsistent government policies, and climate change, which disturbs farming cycles.

These combined factors lead to frequent changes in rice prices, making it harder for many Nigerians to afford the food.

In a recent development, reported that a Nigerian lady was lucky as she was given the chance to enter a supermarket and shop for free.
